China Trade soup ladle, Fiddle Shell & Thread,

China Trade soup ladle, Fiddle Shell & Thread,
click for more pictures for item 0821


Kheechong, Canton circa 1825, length 13 1/2 inches, weight 8.43 oz. Troy, monogrammed "DR". Heavy and in excellent condition, with the classic "inset v" construction on both shells (front & back), bold shell drop (please see third photo). A superb example from the China Trade period, there is but one caveat here: someone has substantially removed the mark (ideogram - K.H.C. - monarch), and it is now only visible in outdoor lighting, with the back tilted at just the right angle.
